55 Word Challenge
Welcome back to #55WordChallenge. The guest judge and artist this week is Lisa Shambrook. Lisa has contributed some great photos to help inspire your muse.
For those that are uninitiated, the 55 Word Challenge is a contest to write a story in 55 words or less. Not an easy task, but fun and I have been blown away by some of the entries. See for yourself, all the past contests can be found here.
The challenge begins at noon Eastern time every Wednesday and ends at noon Thursday. The story is based on one of three photo prompts and can be written in any genre you choose. My only request is no porn. I don't want to hear graphic details. If it is erotic, make it titillating, not obscene. I know that can be done and done well.
The story is to be posted in the comment section below, along with your twitter handle or email address, so I can contact you if you are the winner. If you don't want to list your email address, send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I promise I won't distribute it, but if you are the winner I need a way to notify you and to send you your prize.
And what does the winner get? This purty badge for one. For two, a gift card for $5.00 from Amazon. (The prize will be rewarded within about week and sent to your email.) Also, I will be offering a monthly prize to the story I liked the best between the winners. That will be announced at the end of the month who gets this.
If you are an artist that would like to have your work featured, let me know!
Lisa describes herself as a writer and dreamer in equal measure, with her head in the clouds... she writes, scrapbooks, crafts and photographs. And loves dragons.
Lisa blogs at www.thelastkrystallos.blogspot.co.uk and loves writing Flash Fiction, which features largely on her blog. After having had to remove an image she used on her blog to illustrate her fiction, she turned to creating her own photographs for use. She has recently started a Flickr account and has decided to place the photographs under a Creative Commons license so any bloggers can user the images on their blog providing they link back to the original picture. You can find her Flickr page here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/thelastkrystallos/
